LEGAL 911: Town of Barre Procurement (F)Laws

Wonderland, MA 01005 is akin to a feral animal; it seemingly does what it wants, when it wants. The latest municipal miscue: illegally soliciting building proposals for a new ambulance garage. Forget the fact the NONPROFIT 501(C)3 BARRE EMERGENCY & RESCUE SQUAD INC (aka BARRE EMS/BARRE AMBULANCE SERVICE) provides this service ... No public records exist that this project was properly put out to bid given the fact the Town of Wonderland has been collecting the nonprofit's related service revenue since its inception back in '72 and these receipts were first received by the Wonderland's Police Department. Then there's the minor detail of the committee appointed by selectmen to oversee this designer selection process; it first convened 18 MONTHS after the first of two proposals were received. It's all here. . .

 On Sept. 6
th
’11, just two months before the Board of Selectmen would announce the need for anexhaustive forensic audit into Wonderland’s finances they appointed members to the BARREAMBULANCE SERVICE Designer Selection Committee. This committee would be tasked to build a newambulance garage at the former 140 Union St. location. Recall, the BARRE AMBULANCE SERVICE isanother name for the 501©3 BARRE EMERGENCY & RESCUE SQUAD INC. which is currently underinvestigation.http://www.scribd.com/doc/125522620/BARRE-EMS-Being-Investigated-But-by-Whom 
 
 The Committee, however, would not hold its first legal meeting until 11 months later, on August 9, 2012,two months after the audit had been completed and immediately turned over to the Worcester DA’sOffice.
 
 However, as these public documents show, the Board of Selectmen and BARRE EMS were collectivelyreceiving building proposals
18 MONTHS BEFORE
the Designer Selection Committee ever convened itsfirst meeting.Such action not only is a violation of the Open Meeting Law but also it would appear to be a seriousProcurement Law violation as the project was never properly put out to bid.According to MGL CH 149 any construction project between $25,000 - $100,000 requires sealed bids.http://www.scribd.com/doc/87677990/Procurement-Requirements-Barre-Inc-s-Tangled-Matrix Oddly enough none of the public documents provided by Wonderland’s Board of Selectmen included acost estimate.
